Honouring loved ones
Giving a donation in memory of a loved one is a special way to celebrate their life.
When Lea Chapuis, Principal of Yarralumla Primary School, passed away from cancer, her family, friends and the community came together to honour her memory. They gave generously to the Lea Chapuis Memorial Fund to support research into a novel cancer treatment.
Lea valued and adored people more than anything, and for her to be able to continue this after her passing would make her immensely happy and valued.

The far-reaching impact of giving in memory of a loved one is a beautiful way to commemorate them. With a wide variety of research and student programs, a gift to ANU will create an impact to a project that is close to your heart and theirs.
